Trustee Crowley gave an excellent sumoary of the 39th 
meeting of the Association of Governing Boards held in Lincoln, 
Nebraska on October 11 through 13, 1961. He outlined many areas 
for thought and consideration and urged the Board to read the 
summaries of the major addresses distributed to all members by the 
Association through the A.G.B. Record. 

Trustee Pumphret, Chairman of the University of Massa- 
chusetts Building Authority, gave a very complete report on the 
projects currently in progress under the Authority. 

Project #1 - Dormitory A is progressing on schedule with 
no serious delays foreseen. 

Dormitory B is about a week behind schedule 
but with no serious delays anticipated. 

Approximately 21% of the money allocated 
for construction has been pdid out to date. 

Project #2 - Hugh Stubbins & Associates, architects for 

this project, are making real progress on the 
new dormitory plans. Mr. Stubbins has set a 
target for completion of plans a month ahead 
of his original schedule in order to allow 
as much time as possible for the construction 
phase. Mr. Pun?)hret reported that the actual 
construction cost, including site work, will 



UNyVERSSTY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

be approximately $3,600 per student. With* 
architectual fees and furnishings, this would 
increase the amount to approximately $4,100 
per student. With the further addition of 
maintenance costs, reserve fund and other ex- 
penses, this figure will be over $4,300 per 
student. He reported that Mr. Stubbins is 
planning on a $15 per square foot cost which 
compares very favorably with Dormitory A at 
$14.86 per square foot and Dormitory B at 
$15.44 per square foot. 

Mr. Pumphret outlined the Authority's problems in pro- 
gramming a realistic liquidation of the total project due to the 
inclusion of maintenance costs and such additional items as the re- 
serve fund. He presented statistical data showing the effects of 
the interest percentage and period of amortization. The Authority 
is currently investigating the possibility of using the services of 
HHFA due to their better interest rate and time period. 

A general discussion followed Mr. Pun5)hret's report rela- 
tive to comparative charges for room rents in the current dormi- 
tories established at $200 per year versus the proposed $300 charge 
in the new dormitories. There was general agreement that the Board 
should thoroughly investigate this whole area with the goal of 
attaining more uniform charges throughout. 

At the close of the discussion, it was duly moved and 
seconded and 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees express their 
confidence and thanks to Mr. Pumphret for 
the accomplishments that he and the members 
of the Authority have attained. 

President Lederle reported that the Commission appointed 
to study the area of trusteeship for the University is approaching 
the report stage and that a bill may soon be forthcoming. He ex- 
pressed his appreciation for the fair and understanding treatment

that the Commission has shown to everyone who has appeared before 
it. President Lederle pointed out that the position paper and sub- 
sequent material relative to the trusteeship has been distributed 
to each member of the Board of Trustees. 

Trustee Whitmore reported on the results of the meeting 
between the American Sumatra Tobacco Company and the University 
representatives consisting of himself, Mr. Ainsworth and Judge 
Blassberg. He felt that, following additional appraisals by both 
sides, the figure of $60,000 arrived at on November 17, 1961 was a 
realistic price for the property owned by American Sumatra. 

The total package for the agricultural lands now consists 
of five parcels totaling over 360 acres and including 4 homes and 
bams - some of the latter being in useable condition. The purchase 
price for all parcels would be $133,400. 

Treasurer Johnson then presented to the Board the 

authorizations needed for purchasing each parcel as it was drawn up 

by Judge Blassberg. Authorization of purchase for each parcel was 

presented and acted upon as follows: 

#1 In accordance with Chapter 763, Acts of 1957, Item 8258-34, 
authorizing the Trustees of the University to purchase cer- 
tain lands for agricultural purposes, and the authority 
granted therein, an independent appraisal of the value of 
the land and buildings having been made by a qualified, 
disinterested appraiser and filed with Kenneth W. Johnson, 
Treasurer, on motion duly made and seconded, it was unani- 
mously voted: That the Treasurer, Kenneth W. Johnson, be 
authorized to purchase the land of American Sumatra 
Tobacco Corporation, situate in Deerfield, Franklin County, 
Massachusetts, containing 103.9 acres more or less and more

reported that HHFA has the distinct advantage of lower total costs 
due to better interest rates and a longer amortization period. The 
disadvantage of the HHFA plan was in the area of furnishings in

that their financing does not allow funds for movable furnishings. 

A general discussion was held as to the relative merit 
of the two methods of financing. Mr. Broadhurst pointed out that 
the HHFA would allow approximately $70.00 per year per student for i 
maintenance and service charges versus about $17.00 available if 

I 

public finding was used. There was general agreement that the HHFA 
program should be pursued by the Building Authority and that furthet 
study be given as to possible means of obtaining funds for furnish- 



ings 



Mr. Pumphret requested that the Board approve the Contract 



for Financial Assistance as prepared by Mr. Broadhurst. The con- 
tract does not specify the means of financing and indicates the 
maximum allowable expenditures for project #2 to be $5,800,000. 

Mr. Broadhurst reported that the contract is of the same 
nature as the document approved by the Board in June 1961 for dormi- 
tory project #1 with the additions of specific controls by the 
Board for approval of both preliminary and final drawings and the 
contract bids. He asked that the Board first approve a resolution 
stating vaore specifically the size and number of buildings for 
project #2. 

Upon motion duly made and seconded, it was 
VOTED ; 

Whereas on December 10, 1960 the Trustees (the Trustees) 

of the University of Massachusetts (the University) 
adopted a resolution requesting the University of 
Massachusetts Building Authority (the Authority) 
to plan for dormitories for approximately 1,000

President Lederle reported that, following the approval 
of counsel by the Board at the Septenijer 27, 1961 meeting, Mr. 
Austin Broadhurst, of Ely, Bartlett, Brown and Proctor, has made an 
exhaustive study of the law and legislative actions regarding the

Mr. Broadhurst assured the Trustees that their actions, 
to date, have been consistent with the legislative intent in this 
matter. He plans to continue to explore the cases with the Presi- 
dent and the Trustee Committee appointed for this purpose. 

President Lederle requested that the appointment of

Treasurer Johnson presented the history and usage of 
traffic fines on the campus. He reported that since 1958, with 
Board of Trustees approval, the Student Senate has been assessing 
the fines and using the funds so collected for scholarship loan 
purposes. Since that date, the State Auditors and later the 
Comptroller's Office have questioned such usage of traffic fines 
stating that these funds are state income. The University is 
currently waiting for an opinion from the Attorney General's Office 
regarding the proper allocation of these traffic fines. 

After discussion, and upon motion duly made and 

seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the Treasurer's Office obtain an in- 
formal opinion from the Attorney General's 
Office regarding the proper allocation of 
traffic fine income and, should the opinion 
be against the present usage, that the 
Treasurer be authorized to refund such in- 
come to the State. 

Commissioner Kiernan informed the Board that he will 
appear before the Commission studying the proposed Medical School 
on Monday, December 18, 1961. He asked if the Board wished to ex- 
press their position through him with the Commission. 

Following a discussion, and upon motion duly made and 
seconded, it was 

VOTED: To reaffirm the earlier position of the Board 
of Trustees that it was in favor of a four- 
year institution located in the Boston area 
and to instruct Dr. Kiernan to report this 
position to the Commission.

Treasurer Johnson reported to the Board that the acquisi- 
tion of land adjacent to the campus would be expedited if a land 
agent could be retained to negotiate such property. He recommended 
to the Board that the firm of Gordon Ainsworth 6c Associates of South 
D eerfield be retained as land agents for this purpose.

present and acting throughout, the Chairman called the meeting to 
order. 

The minutes of the meeting of December 12, 1961, along

RESOLVED: That the Chairman, the Secretary and 
the Treasurer of the Trustees of the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts be and each such 
officer acting alone hereby is authorized 
in the name and on behalf of the Commonwealth 
of Massachusetts to sign the fom of guaranty 
provided in the Contract for Financial

dated as of December 12, 1961 on each note 
and bond issued by said Authority to finance 
the cost of the project referred to in said 
contract or to refund any note or bond 
theretofore issued for such purpose. 

Mr. Broadhurst, as counsel for the Board of Trustees, 
then presented a summation of his findings on the personnel actions 
pending before the Board. Mr. Broadhurst outlined the background 
for the actions and gave a very concise presentation of his find- 
ings. He stated that the presentation was for information only and 
that he plans to proceed with further definitive action. The 
Chairman complimented Mr. Broadhurst on the clarity of his pre- 
sentation and, after a brief discussion by the Board, Mr. Broadhurst 
excused himself from the meeting. 

Trustee Haigis, Chairman of the Faculty and Program of 
Study Committee, reported on the informal meeting held at the Uni- 
versity on Friday, January 12, 1962. He said that, although a 
quorum was not present, it was an excellent meeting and gave the 
committee an opportunity to meet with the representatives of the 
Academic Long-Range Planning Committee and to have a thorough 
discussion of the courses and programs of study presented to them. 
Due to the lack of a quorum, no specific action could be 
taken by the committee and no formal recommendations can be pre- 
sented to the Board. Mr. Haigis pointed out that the minutes of 



2329 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

the meeting, plus the material under discussion, have been distri- 
buted to each Board member and asked that they study the material 
and consider it at the next Board of Trustees meeting. It was his 
hope that the Board could then take action without necessitating an 
interim meeting of the Committee on Faculty and Program of Study. 

As an additional item, Trustee Haigis reported that the j Polymer 

i Research 
Polymer Research Institute was off to a good start having had an Institute 

excellent meeting at the University on Saturday, January 13, 1962. 

There was a good attendance of an excellent group of people for the 

symposium and he felt that there is every indication of the Polymer 

Institute developing into a real asset not only to the University 

but to the area as a whole. 



Due to the confidential nature of the material covered 

during discussion of candidates for honorary degrees and upon motion 

duly made and seconded, it was 

VOTED: That the Board of Trustees go into Executive 
session for the consideration of the item on 
the agenda for honorary degrees. 

After the executive session, the Chairman called upon 
President Lederle to present the material for the proposed naming 
of Dormitory A, to be completed under the University of Massachu- 
setts Building Authority. The President told the Board that he felt; 
it an honor to be able to present to them the suggestion of naming 
Dormitory A in recognition of Representative Edwin D. (Pat) Gorman, 
who had been one of the strongest friends and supporters of the 
University for many years. 

The Board was unanimous in recognizing Representative 
Gorman and, upon motion duly made and seconded, it was

14th Hampden District from Holyoke, 
Massachusetts . 

President Lederle explained to the Board the purpose of 
the statement, distributed to the Board of Trustees, on student 
housing and a policy for off-campus student housing. He said that 
this was formulated through the cooperative efforts of the Dean of 
Students, the Provost, and the University Master Planning Committee 
He felt that such a statement was necessary at this time to clarify 
the University's position regarding off -campus housing and the re- 
lationship of fraternity and sorority housing with the town of 
Amherst. The President said that the town has felt the lack of 
such a statement of policy from the University in establishing 
realistic planning and zoning. 

He pointed out that since the action of the Board of 
Trustees at their meeting on May 15, 1956, it has been found by the 
University Master Planning Committee, and recommended by the con- 
sultant on planning, that areas originally designated for fraternity 
and sorority housing, within the campus confines, should be re- 
served for use by the University for academic purposes or for Uni- 
versity residence or boarding halls. He recommended to the Board 
that it rescind its action of May 15, 1956. 

Upon recommendation of the President, and upon motion 
duly made and seconded, it xcas

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

VOTED: To rescind the action of the Board of Trustees 
of May 15, 1956, in which it was voted to set

construction of chapter houses subject to 
approval by the Board of suitable sites to be 
recommended by Shurcliff and Shurcliff and 
with the understanding that proper restrictions 
shall be imposed in the conveyance of land. 

Regarding off -campus student housing, the President asked 
the Board for their approval of the policy as distributed to them 
by the Dean of Students. In this way, the town of Amherst can re- 
ceive an official University policy and will be able to proceed on 
a more definite plan and program of their own. 

Upon recommendation of the President, and upon motion duly 
made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the Board of Trustees hereby approves 
the University of Massachusetts policy on 
off -campus student housing as outlined in 
Attachment A to these minutes and hereby 
made a part of these minutes. 

President Lederle reported to the Board that the new 
position of Dean of Students had not been included within the 
Faculty Senate at the University and outlined the steps taken at 
the University prior to this presentation to the Board. An amend- 
ment to the constitution of the Faculty Senate appointing the Dean 
of Students as an ex officio member of the Senate was presented at 
the December Faculty meeting and voted by a majority of those 
present and voting at the January Faculty meeting. 

Upon recommendation of the President, and upon motion 
duly made and seconded, it was

the amendment as presented by the University 
of Massachusetts Faculty to include the Dean 
of Students as an ex officio member of the

Progress 
Report on 
Uganda 
Contract 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



Treasurer Johnson reviewed with the Board the work of the 
investigating team headed by Dean Purvis of the School of Education 
in Uganda during this past sunaner. The purpose of the team was to 
investigate the possibility of establishing a girls' boarding schoo 
in Uganda. The Treasurer also reported that the British will be 
leaving Uganda in August, 1962, and the Government of Uganda will 
take over from that point. He stated that the contract is being 
extended to cover more specific phases of the establishment of this 
school. For example, an architect from Uganda will visit the Unitec 
States to study American construction and also an American architect 
is to go to Uganda for a period of three months to act as a con- 
sultant to the architects. At the present time, negotiations are 
going on with the Agency for International Development for a pro- 
gram of planning this school which will consist of a tv/elve-build- 
ing campus. The design and construction will be handled by the 
Uganda Government. The University will be charged with the 
responsibility of recruiting personnel and staffing the school. It 
is estimated that the initial phase of operation will cover a 
period of about 8 or 9 years at which time it will be turned over 
to the Uganda Government for complete local operation. 

It was pointed out during the discussion that followed 
that no contract has been signed with AID at this time and that only 
negotiations have been accomplished to date. The President pointed 
out that he felt this to be an excellent opportunity for the School 
of Education to participate in a program of this type which will be 
good not only for the school, professionally, but will be good for 
the University and the Commom^ealth for international relationships, 



2333 



UNIVERSSTY dp MASSACHUSETTS 

A question was raised regarding the role of the United States 
architect in the program. The Treasurer reported that the architect 
was selected jointly by AID and the University School of Education 
personnel. The architect is to go to Uganda for the purpose of con- 
sultation on American construction methods, techniques, and materials 
and is not there to do design work. He pointed out the difficulty 
of obtaining an architect who could leave the country for a three 
months period of time and reported that both AID and the School of 
Education felt they were very fortunate in obtaining the person 
selected. 

The President pointed out that no action is needed at this 
time but wished to inform the Board of the progress on the contract 
and will bring it before the Board at the time when the negotiations 
are more definitive. 



Treasurer Johnson reported to the Board that renegotiations 

! AID 
of the AID Contract for Education of Internationals is now pending. Contract 

He stated that this is a contract that has been in effect for some 
time but that the scope of the contract is being increased to cover 
all phases of the University rather than just agricultural \students 
and that some of the payments made to the students have beef^ in- 
creased. Upon recommendation of the Treasurer, and upon motion 
duly made and seconded, it was 

VOTED: That the Board of Trustees hereby authorizes 
the Treasurer to renew the contract with the 
Administration for International Development 
for the program of education of international 
students. 

President Lederle reported that over $1200 has been re- Matching

these funds, it will not be necessary to request the Board for 
matching funds for this program at this time. 

President Lederle reviewed with the Board the additional 
two items attached to the list of personnel actions as 
well as the third item on the addendum to the agenda for the meet- 
ing which was sent out at a separate time. He asked the Trustees 
to approve an Emeritus status for Mr. Hobart H. Ludden, who was 
the first Business Manager of the University having been appointed 



in 1952. 



The President then proposed the appointment of Gerald J. 



Grady as Business Manager to replace Mr. Ludden on his retirement, 
February 1, 1962. The third additional item was the recommendation 
of Dr. John W. Ryan as Secretary of the University. Dr. Ryan will, 
in this capacity, also serve as Assistant to the President. 

Following general discussion of the three additional items 
as well as the personnel actions covering the other appointments 
and promotions, the Board agreed to consider all the items under the 
one heading of Personnel Actions. 

Therefore, upon recommendation of the President, and upon 
motion duly made and seconded, it was

other personnel actions in a list entitled

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

President Lederle requested the acceptance, by the Board, 
of the gift of land consisting of 17.465 acres given to the Univer- 
sity by Murray D. and Anne H. Lincoln, Class of 1914, on Deceiriber 
29, 1961. This land is adjoining land now held by the Trustees in 
Blenden Township, Franklin County, (Columbus) Ohio. 

Upon recommendation of the President and upon motion duly 
made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To accept the gift of land consisting of 
17.465 acres located in Blenden Township,

And it was 

VOTED ; To authorize the Treasurer to lease back 

this land to Murray D. and Anne H. Lincoln 
as an addition to the current lease. 

President Lederle, Chairman Boyden and others of the 
Board presented their findings to the Board regarding the status of 
the Trusteeship Commission report, the University budget, and other 
-bills pending before the Legislature. This was followed by a 
general discussion relating to various aspects of these three areas, 
It was felt that the University and the people speaking on its be- 
half have received a very fair reception by the Commission and the 
people working with other aspects of the pending budget and legis- 
lative items. It was felt that the Board should be fully av^are of 
what legislative action is pending and the status of the programs at 
this time. The Board was assured that they would be kept informed 
of these items during the coming months. 

Trustee Pumphret, Chairman of the University of Massachu- j U of M 

I Building 

setts Building Authority, reported that the Authority is required i Authority

felt that the Authority should look to the Board of Trustees re- 
garding the requirements for v/hat should be included in this first 
report by the Authority. Following a discussion and upon motion 
duly made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : That the President be authorized to develop 
these requirements for the report by the 
University of Massachusetts Building Authority. 

Trustee Pumphret then outlined the current status on 
Project #1 stating that both buildings are coming along on schedule 

Mr. Pumphret then reported that the Building Authority 
had held a meeting in Boston on the morning of January 17th in 
which a final review, by the Authority, was given to the preliminary 
plans presented, in detail, by the architect. He stated that these 
plans include many of the suggested changes and that they had been 
reviewed with the University administration and representatives of 
the University of Massachusetts Planning Committee. He felt that 
Mr. Stubbins had done an excellent job in meeting the requirements 
for both the University and the Authority and that the plans repre- 
sented an excellent program for housing for the University. He re- 
quested that the Board give their approval to these plans. 

Miss Schuck then reported to the Board that representatives 
of her committee and the Authority have met twice with University 
administration and planning committee representatives since the 
first approval of the plans, in principle, by the Board of Trustees 
in December. She stated that the first meeting was held to move 
the complex on the site plan in order to save some existing build- 
ings and trees. The second meeting, held recently on campus, was 
a thorough review, in detail, of the over-all plans including such

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

areas as roads, parking, utilities and specific details of con- 
struction. Following this. Miss Schuck presented the plans in full 
so that each Trustee would have a thorough briefing on v;hat is 
being proposed by the Authority. 

Trustee li^/hitmore reported that the normal channels would 
be for these plans to be considered by the Trustee Committee on 
^Buildings and Grounds, but that he had agreed that an exception 
could be made since time was pressing. 

Treasurer Johnson commented that the recent meeting be- 
tween campus officials, Miss Schuck' s committee, and the architect 
had been most satisfactory. He reported that a detailed review of 
preliminary plans had been made. He stated that some costs had 
been pared through reduction of parking areas, some service areas, 
and through transferals. He recommended that the Board accept the 
preliminary plans as presented, subject to changes as already pre- 
sented to the architect. 

Therefore, upon recommendation of the Treasurer, and 

upon motion duly made and seconded, it was 

VOTED; To accept the preliminary plans and 

specifications for Dormitory Project #2 
to house approximately 1300 students for 
fall, 1963 as presented by the University

Land Acquisition 

Trustee Whitmore reported on the request of the Amherst 

i Lutheran Church to acquire a portion of the Lamed property located 

I 

i to the north of the School of Education for the purpose of erecting 
I a church for the use of the University and the community. He ex- 
I pressed the appreciation of the coiiinittee for the considered approach 
I! and excellent presentation made by the church group. However, the 
I University planning consultant, Sasaki, Walker & Associates of 
j Cambridge, Massachusetts, recommended that this land be acquired 
I entirely for University use and suggested other possible sites be 
considered for the church. As a result of this recommendation, the 
Buildings and Grounds Committee did not have a specific recoiranenda- 
tion to make to the Board but will refer the matter to the Univer- 
sity Master Planning Committee for further study and subsequent re- 
port to the Buildings and Grounds Committee.

90% completed. The furniture purchase orders have been approved by 
the Authority. In suinnary. Project #1 is in good shape both 
physically and fiscally.

of Boston wage scales instead of Amherst rates. However, Trustee 
Pumphret felt that the Housing and Home Finance Authority will move

rapidly to counter balance this delay. Bids from the sub-contractorp 
are due to be opened on June 15, 1962 and the general contractors on 
June 22, 1962. There are 11 general contractors interested in the 
project. Ground breaking is anticipated for about the first of 
July,

that the projects would not have reached their present stages with- 
out the constant efforts of the Building Authority and the coopera- 
tion and understanding of the Board of Trustees.

meeting for the latter part of June due to the rapid accumulation 

of business at this time of year and the need to approve operating 

budgets for July 1. He further suggested that the Board consider 

meeting at the Waltham Field Station. Therefore, upon motion duly

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



His was an outstanding and varied career in educa- 
tion, farming, politics and public service. In his 
thirty-three years as a Trustee, Mr. l^itmore exercised 
an important influence on University affairs. He was 
ever active in enlisting the support of Massachusetts 
people for his Alma Mater and he was deeply concerned 
that the University stress development of initiative 
and leadership ability, qualities so well exenplified 
in his own life. 

As an undergraduate in the class of 1915, he was 
student, athlete, leader and orator. He was one of 
the founders of Adelphia, senior men's honorary society, 
and maintained an active student career throughout his 
college years. 

As a citizen, Mr. IJhitmore played an important role 
in the life of his home, church, community and state. 
His influence was state-v/ide and his work on the Board 
of Trustees received national recognition. 

In tribute to his loyal character and his out- 
standing service both to the University and to the 
Commonwealth 

BE IT RESOLVED that the Trustees of the University of 
Massachusetts hereby express their feeling of personal 
loss through his death and, further, the Trustees 
direct the Secretary to inscribe this resolution in 
the records of the Board and to send a copy to 
Mrs. Whitmore. 

The members of the Board stood for a moment of silence 
out of respect for the deceased.

Treasurer Johnson reported to the Trustees that the 

necessary analysis and testing work for the sports facility was 

being done by Sasaki, Walker & Associates and the cost of this, 

which would be reported to the Board, will come to about $2,800. 

The Treasurer also indicated that the main project for this firm of 

planners and architects is the performance of analyses, tests and 

other services necessary to the development of the Master Plan Study 

of the campus. This is especially necessary due to the discovery 

that certain sub-soil conditions on campus preclude the use of some 

areas for major construction. Over the next year and a half, the 

Board will be asked to approve the expenditure of approximately 

$25,000 for the services required in this connection.

The Treasurer reported to the Board of Trustees the possi- 
bility for the University to acquire an IBM 7040 research and in- 
struction co]:q>uter system at a 60% educational discount. If such a 
facility were placed in order now, it would be ready for installa- 
tion approximately the same time that the new administration build- 
ing would be ready on the campus, and it was intended that there be 
provided in the new administration building a space adequate for a 
computer center. If the Board decided to authorize the ordering of 
the IVM 7040, it would then be possible to tie it in with the other 
coii^uter equipment at the University to provide a facility adequate 
for the research, instructional and administrative needs on the 
caucus at that time. After general discussion, a motion was duly 
made and seconded, and it was 

VOTED : To authorize the placing of an order (subject 
to later cancellation if necessary) for an

60% educational discount allowance as per 
IBM offers of June 27, 1962 and July 18, 
1962, on a lease or purchase basis at the 
option of the University of Massachusetts 
for installation in the summer of 1965 in 
the new administration building, said 
computer to be for instruction and research; 

And to authorize a request to the National

1962 in the amount of $10,367 shall be returned 
to the Treasury of the Commonwealth and in view 
of the fact that $7,196.66 of this amount had, 
under vote of the Trustees of February 28, 1958, 
been awarded to students as scholarships, the 
Treasurer is hereby authorized to use unrestricted 
balances in the Trust Fund Income Account from 
\^ich to make this payment. 

In view of the fact that the provisions of 
Section 32A of Section 2 of Chapter 648 of 
the Acts of 1962 is inconsistent with the 
vote of the Trustees of February 28, 1958, 
said act shall henceforth govern the handling 
of monies received from such fines and said 
vote shall be null and void. Any sums re- 
ceived under said Section 32A shall be de- 
posited in the Scholarship Trust Fund and 
from time to time be awarded to needy and 
deserving students in scholarships as de- 
termined by the Faculty Committee on Scholar- 
ships and Financial Aid. 

President Lederle informed the members of the Board of the 

40th annual meeting of the Association of Governing Boards to be 

held at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan, October 

9-13, 1962. After general discussion by the Board of the matter of 

representation at this conference, it was duly moved, seconded and 

VOTED ; That any trustee interested in represent- 
ing the Board of Trustees at the 40th 
annual meeting of the Association of 
Governing Board would communicate that 
interest to the Secretary of the Board, 
Subsequent arrangements would be made 
by the Secretary. 

The Treasurer brought to the attention of the Board of 
Trustees that there is a procedure by which certain officials of the 
University a?;e designated as en^owered to negotiate classified con- 
tracts with government agencies. It was, therefore, moved and 
seconded and

VOTED : That the responsibility and authority for 
the negotiation, execution and administra- 
tion of classified contracts is assigned 
to the following officers of the University: 
John W. Lederle, President; Kenneth W. 
Johnson, Treasurer; John W. Ryan, Secretary. 

The Treasurer pointed out to the Trustees that it was 

necessary to determine a rental rate for the apartments to be 

occupied by heads of residence in Gorman and Brett Houses. After 

a general discussion, it was moved and seconded and 

VOTED ; To recommend to the University of Massachu- 
setts Building Authority that rental rates 
for apartments for Heads of Residence in 
dormitories on the campus, con^arable to 
those in Brett and Gorman Houses, are $18.80 
per month and therefore the Trustees request 
that the University of Massachusetts Building 
Authority establish monthly rental rates for 
the apartments for Heads of Residence in 
Brett and Gorman Houses. 

President Lederle informed the Trustees that he had re- 
ceived information from the Dean of Agriculture that there is a 
possibility that Mrs. H, E, Warren may be interested in donating 
the H. E. Warren Farm, Chestnut Street, Ashland, Massachusetts to 
the University. After general discussion, it was moved, seconded 
and 

VOTED : To refer this question of the proposed gift 
of the Warren Farm to the Buildings and 
Grounds Committee of the Trustees. The 
committee was to investigate the possibility 
of the gift and report back to the Board of 
Trustees. 

President Lederle informed the Trustees that the agency 

for International Development in Washington, D.C. had requested the 

University to consider the possibility of the project in Northern 

Rhodesia or Nyasaland. This project would be carried on by the 

College of Agriculture. Accordingly, Dean Spielman of the College

the possibilities of a survey to produce information on which a de- 
cision could be based whether or not to recommend University of 
Massachusetts' participation in such a project. After general 
discussion, it was duly moved and seconded and 

VOTED ; To authorize the President to proceed with 
arrangements for a survey to investigate 
the conditions relative to a project in 
Nyasaland or Northern Rhodesia, 

To authorize the Treasurer of the Univer- 
sity, Kenneth W, Johnson, to execute a 
contract with the Agency for International 
Development in an amount sufficient to 
cover expenses of the survey. 

President Lederle presented to the Board of Trustees a pro- 
posal for the creation of an Academic Theatre Program on the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts campus. This program would be established in 
accordance with the procedures outlined in Document #63-027 v^ich 
acconpanies and is part of these minutes. The President indicated 
his belief that this program would add to the cultural advantages of 
the canpus. He pointed out, however, that in order to carry this 
proposal through to success, it was essential that a certain amount 
of financing be provided in the nature of a revolving fund. On this 
basis, the President reconmended to the Board of Trustees that they 
authorize the program. In response to a question from Trustee Brett j 
Treasurer Johnson said that very likely a trust fund would be set up 
to account for deposits to and expenditures from the revolving fund. 
After general discussion, it was moved, seconded and 

VOTED ; To establish a Revolving Fund at $3,000 
to support the Academic Theatre Program.

Report of the Buildings and Grounds Committee 

Trustee Haigis, Chairman of the Buildings and Grounds 
Committee, reported on the current status of several land acquisi- 
tion actions. 

(1) Brown parcel - the Toxm of Amherst has an easement 
on the Brown property for necessary drainage pur- 
poses. Trustee Haigis reported that the University 
has already voted to acquire the property and that 
arrangements can be made with the Town of Amherst 
with respect to this easement. He said that in the 
opinion of the Treasurer, it would not be difficult 
to come to an agreement satisfactory to both parties.

After general discussion, the Board agreed that action to 
conclude the purchase should be completed and any necessary arrange- 
ments be made with the town with respect to the drainage easements. 

(2) Doleva property - Trustee Haigis reported that 
there was a flaw in the title on this property 
that the Board had already voted to purchase, 
and also some drainage easements existing with 
respect to this property. Attorney Blassberg 
recommends taking this property by eminent 
domain in order to clear the title. 



The Committee on Buildings and Grounds therefore recommended 
to the Board of Trustees that they vote to take the Doleva property 
by eminent domain proceedings. This vote will be taken at the next 
meeting of the Board of Trustees (October 4, 1962) in accordance 
with the usual procedures of the Board. 

(3) Holmes and Tokasz properties - the Buildings and 
, Grounds Coirmittee has authorized the Treasurer 

of the University to obtain additional appraisals 
on each of these properties, A further report 
and recommendation on these properties will be 
brought to the Board by the comnittee subsequently. 

(4) Wysocki property - the Buildings and Grounds 
Conmittee recommends to the Board of Trustees 
the purchase of the Wysocki property for $60,000. 
The vote on this recommendation will be taken by 
the Board at the next meeting (October 4, 1962) 
pursuant to the usual procedures of the Board. 
Treasurer Johnson presented to the Board the 
problem of the construction by the Town of 
Amherst of a paved sidewalk from North Amherst 
to the Marks Meadow School and the problem of 
extending this sidewalk across the Wysocki 
property. The town at this moment is prepared 
to build a section across the Wysocki property, 
but requires approval to do so. After general 
discussion, the Board authorized the Treasurer 
to represent that the Board of Trustees agreed 
as option holders to an easement for purposes 
of construction of a sidewalk as intended by 
the Town of Amherst at no cost to the Commonwealth.

the authority granted therein, indepent appraisals 
of the value of the land and buildings having

and filed with Kenneth W, Johnson, Treasurer, on 
motion duly made and seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : That the Trustees of the University purchase 
-^ or take by eminent domain in fee the property 
of Francis M. Britt and Virginia R. Britt con- 
sisting of a parcel of land in Amherst, 
Hampshire Counth, Massachusetts, situate at

understanding that the buildings on said 
property shall have been removed by the said 
Francis M. Britt and Virginia R. Britt, and 
that the purchase price for said land (without 
the buildings) shall be $15,000.00. 

(6) Adams property - Trustee Haigis reported that 
the Buildings and Grounds Committee had learned 
that in connection with the Adams property, 
there was an additional 30 acres on the west side 
of North Pleasant Street that had not originally 
been intended as property to be acquired, but 
that the owner wished to sell all his property 

as a block. There was also some indication that 
there were others who were interested in acquiring 
the property. After general discussion among 
the members of the Board of Trustees, it was 
duly moved, seconded and 

VOTED : That the Buildings and Grounds Committee x^as 
instructed to investigate further the matter 
of the Adams property including the additional 
thirty acres and bring back a recommendation 
for Board action.

Trustee Haigis reported on the appearance before the meet- 
ing of the Buildings and Grounds Committee of Mr. and Mrs. Grandonic<|> 
who occupy certain premises on land already taken by the University, 
Their appearance was relevant to the negotiation of a purchase price 
agreement for the land on v^hich their business is located. The 
committee reported that the position of the Grandonicos with respect 
to the price they desire and the position of the University with 
respect to the appraisals made and the price that could be 
recommended by the committee were so far apart that the Board had 
no conqjromise offer that it could make. After general discussion by 
the Board of Trustees and upon motion being duly made and seconded, 
it was 

VOTED : To authorize legal proceedings to be taken 

to cause the Grandonicos to quit the premises. 

Trustee Haigis reported the recommendations of the Build- 
ings and Grounds Committee to the Board of Trustees with respect to 
the selection of architects for several projects \^ich have pre- 
viously been studied or designed and are ready for proceeding with 
subsequent phases. After general discussion and upon motion being

Trustee Haigis acknowledged the fact that the Buildings 

and Grounds Committee recoimnendations were not available 

sufficiently in advance to give the Board seven days within which 

to consider the recommendations. The reasons for this were beyond 

the control of the committee or the chairman. There was general 

discussion by the Board of this matter, and agreement that while it 

was most important to adhere to the procedure of giving ample 

notice before coming to Board action, in the case of recommendation 

of architects for some projects the Board felt very keenly its 

responsibility to do its part in advancing and preserving the 

aesthetic excellence of the campus. After general discussion and 

upon motion being duly made and seconded, it was

1. James A. Britton, Greenfield, Mass.

There was a general discussion of the need for making a 

recommendation with respect to the plans to be drawn for the new 

Poultry Plant. After general discussion and upon motion being duly 

made and seconded, it was

permit further consideration of the matter, 
and to request that an extension of time 
for submitting recomnendations be granted 
by the Coninission on Administration and

The need for alteration work on the Large Animal Building 

was discussed. The Board considered that a designer or architect 

was necessary but that perhaps a recommendation was not. After 

general discussion and upon motion being duly made and seconded, it 

was

(Gorman House) and the finding by the Buildings and Grounds Committee 

that everything was in good order. The committee reconmended to the

the condition of coii5)letion of work 
according to the plans and specifications. 

The Board discussed the matter of dedication of the resi- 
dential units A and B (Gorman and Brett Houses) and the proper 
timing for scheduling this event. The President suggested that it 
may be a good idea to combine the dedication of Gorman House with 
the Legislators' Day. Trustee Fox suggested and the Board agreed 
that the President be authorized to proceed with the determination 
of a date for a confined dedication and Legislators' Day. 

Upon recommendation of the President and upon motion 

being duly made and seconded, it was 

VOTED ; To make the appointments, promotions and 
other personnel actions included in the

to the future of the program. The Provost stated that these budgets 

reflected a phasing out process for the undergraduate program. 

There are no first-year students in the program. After general 

discussion by the Board and upon motion being duly made and 

seconded, it was 

VOTED ; To approve the Pittsfield undergraduate 
program budget identified as document 
63-029 attached to and made part of these 
minutes and to approve the Pittsfield 
graduate program budget identified as 
document 63-030 attached to and made part 
of these minutes. 

The President called to the attention of the Board of 
Trustees recent legislation by the General Court (Chapter 429 of the 
Acts of 1962) which establishes in the Department of Education an 
Advisory Board of Higher Education Policy. Under the legislation, 
the President of the University of Massachusetts is an ex officio 
member of the Advisory Board. The purpose of the Advisory Board of 
Higher Education according to the statute is to review the total 
higher education program supported by the appropriation of State 
Funds and to submit a report to the Governor and to the General 
Court on or before December 1 of each year. This report is to indi- 
cate the recommendation of said Board as to the proportionate divi- 
sion among the various state-supported programs of higher education 
of such funds as may be appropriated for those programs. The 
emergency law was invoked with respect to this act thereby causing 
it to become effective May 11, 1962. This may be interpreted to re- 
quire a report from the Board by December 1, 1962. 

For all these reasons, the President presented the matter 
to the Board of Trustees as one requiring their consideration for 
policy and for procedure. In the course of discussion it was 



TRUSTEE 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

pointed out that possibly a dileitma could arise wherein the Presi- 
dent was required on the one hand to work for the maximum support 
of the University of Massachusetts and on the other to participate 
in decisions which in effect might cut back support for the Univer- 
sity, Of course, other interpretations of the statute are equally 
possible. Further, it appears that the lack of staff to support 
the Advisory Board and its work not only complicates the problem 
but could weaken the Advisory Board in coming to grips with the 
underlying policy commitments in the various state program budgets. 
One view expressed was that since the report is expected to come up 
with a recommendation for proportional division, it is necessary to 
determine the base for this proportionate division. Under such a 
view the appropriate interpretation of the statute is that the base 
for the proportionate division be the aggregate total of budget re- 
quests from all of the state programs. No other base can be 
assumed, since the report is due before the General Court considers 
budget questions. There was general consensus on the Board that 
the major need in Massachusetts is to increase the support for 
public higher education. The existence of and broad support for 
various private college systems x^hile substantial does not obviate 
the need for more public higher education in the state. It is 
incumbent upon the Board of Trustees and the University administra- 
tion to make out a budget and report for the University of Massa- 
chusetts which requests and justifies what is needed to attain the 
levels of excellence necessary in the interest of the Commonwealth, 
giving appropriate regard to the roles performed by other public 
institutions and by private colleges and universities.

invited the University to submit a proposal and budget for the 
training of 80 to 100 Peace Corps Volunteers for a period beginning 
approximately October 10 and concluding approximately December 20, 
1962. The training would be in three major areas; Physical Educa- 
tion, Agricultural Extension, and Rural Development. The volunteers 
would be trained to take up assignments in French West Africa 
principally in Senegal, Ivory Coast and Niger, The Secretary re- 
ported that the matter had been brought to the attention of the 
Provost and the Deans of the Schools involved as well as to the de- 
partments upon whom the major burden of the training would fall. 
In all cases there was affirmative response to the idea of working 
with the Peace Corps and agreement to undertake the necessary efforts 
to meet this training program need. In order to proceed, it was now 
necessary for the Board to authorize the officers of the University 
to formalize arrangements with the Peace Corps and to negotiate a 
contract for the training program. After general discussion by the 
Board of Trustees and upon motion being duly made and seconded, it 
was 

VOTED ; To authorize the administrative officers of 
the University to negotiate a contract with 
the Peace Corps for a training program for 
Peace Corps Volunteers at the University of 
Massachusetts. 

The President presented the budget document to the 

Trustees. The President pointed out two basic assuicptions in the 

formulating of the budget. First, an increase in enrollment to 



iiJ

UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

8300 for fiscal year ending 1964 and an addition to the faculty of 

57. The increased enrollment emphasizes the need to press forward 

the dormitory building program. Trustee Pumphret pointed out that 

in the light of present status and barring unforeseen difficulties 

of weather or other nature, the dormitories may be ready by the 

opening of school in 1963. Trustee Pumphret noted the very close 

relationship between budget policies and estimates and the progress 

with construction of dormitory facilities, and offered to make 

available progress report and other information periodically to the 

University administration and other Trustees who may be particularl;jr 

concerned. After general discussion among the members of the 

Board and upon motion being duly made and seconded, it was 

VOTED : To approve the budget as presented in 

document 63-032 which is attached to and 
hereby made a part of these minutes for 
the fiscal year beginning July 1, 1963 
to June 30, 1964. 

The President called the attention of the members of the 
Board to the fact that the Chapter 648 of the Acts of 1962, among 
other things, empowered the Board to make rules and regulations 
with respect to the operation and control of vehicles on the campus 
and other lands of the University. In the exercise of this power, 
however, it is necessary to assess very carefully any action in 
terms of its impact on traffic flow on the campus, as well as its 
conformity with the best legal practice. In the course of general 
discussion of this matter, the consensus of opinion was that rules 
and regulations should be established which conformed with the best 
legal practice and x-7ith advice obtained from the Attorney General 
and other qualified sources. Careful attention to the details in- 
volved in this requires time, and therefore the preservation of

peace and good order must be assured upon the carpus and other lands 

of the University while traffic policies, rules and regulations are 

being worked out. As a result of this discussion and upon motion 

being duly made and seconded, it was 

VOTED ; To authorize the President to establish and 
promulgate temporary provisions to govern 
the control of traffic and motor vehicles on 
the canpus and other lands of the University 
and to inform members of the Board of these 
temporary provisions which will be governing 
traffic on the campus as soon as practicable, 
or to recommend to the Board, as soon as 
possible, rules and regulations which the 
Board may formally consider and adopt. 

Secretary Ryan brought to the attention of the Board the 
necessity for approval of a formal statement with respect to the 
handling of classified contracts between the University and the De- 
partment of Defense, After general discussion and upon motion being 
duly made and seconded, it was 

VOTED ; To adopt the following policy for classified 
contracts : 

That the following statement of policy and pro- 
cedures for handling United States Department 
Defense classified contracts is adopted as the 
official policy of the University of Massachu- 
setts dealing with such matters: 

Responsibility and authority for the negotiation, 
execution and administration of classified contracts 
is assigned to the following officers of the Univer- 
sity; John W. Lederle, President; John W. Ryan, 
Secretary; Kenneth W. Johnson, Treasurer, who are 
designated as the managerial group. 

No member of the Board of Trustees of the University, 
except the President of the University, will require 
nor have access, and each member can be effectively 
denied access to classified information in the 
possession of the University of Massachusetts. The 
above Trustees, citizens of the United States, will 
in no way participate in the administration and 
technical phases of research contracts with the 
government .

With the conclusion of the various items of regular busi- 
ness to be brought before the Board of Trustees, the chairman pro 
tern invited into the meeting Dr. Chester E. Cross, Professor and 
Head of the Cranberry Station, and Dean Arless Spielman, College of 
Agriculture. Dr. Cross gave a most interesting and succinct report 
on the work of the Cranberry Station and its relationship to the 
cranberry industry of Massachusetts and the United States. The 
Board of Trustees greatly appreciated his familiarity x^7ith the 
problems of the industry and the overall program of the station as 
well as his clarity in responding to questions and discussing the 
various phases of operation. 

The meeting was adjourned at 5:30 p.m. Follov7ing the 
meeting the Board of Trustees toured some of the facilities of the 
station, and were assisted in their observations by several of the 
staff members of the station. The evening was climaxed by a dinner 
arranged for by the Cranberry Station which included among the 
guests the Trustees, the Field Station staff and several repre- 
sentatives of the Cranberry Industry,

The provisions of Chapter 626 of the Acts of 1958 having 
been complied with, and a quorum of the Board of Trustees being 
present and acting throughout, Chairman Boyden called the meeting to 
order. The minutes of the meeting of September 12, 1962 were 
approved as distributed. 
Report of the Buildings and Grounds Coitinittee 

Trustee Haigis, Chairman of the Buildings and Grounds 
Committee, reported to the Board the results of tx-jo meetings held by 
the Trustee Committee - one with Dean Pietro Belluschi and the other 
with Commissioner Charles Gibbons, Commission on Administration and 
Finance. The purpose of the meeting with Dean Belluschi was to 
focus on overall plans for canpus environment and to discuss with 
the Dean specific recommendations of architects for some projects 
now authorized. Dean Belluschi said that a public institution 
should not be ostentatious because it cannot afford it either from 
the financial or from the public relations points of view. Se- 
lection of architects for public buildings involve critical 
decisions because not only is it necessary to select an architect 
with fine ideas and great talent, it is also important to recognize 
that one cannot "hold his hand". What is needed in an architect is

more than a talented designer; he must also have a sound organiza- 
tion behind him that understands building budgets and how to carry 
through a project. With respect to new cons-truction. Dean Belluschi, 
suggested and the Committee generally agreed that the overall theme 
on the University of Massachusetts campus should be unity, stressing; 
simplicity of design and careful attention to detail. This means 
that even if the greatest architects in the world were available, 
they should not be selected each to build a monument of his own be- 
cause that would result in a caucus hodgepodge. With respect to 
additions to and renovations of existing buildings, the Dean and 
the Coimtiittee considered whether recommendations for a new architect 
might be made or whether the original architect of the building 
should be used. Dean Belluschi' s conclusion was that generally it 
was best to use the original architect. Sometimes, he said condi- 
tions call for exercising extreme caution so as not to ruin a good 
old building by an ill-conceived change in the original structure. 
The Chairman of the Buildings and Grounds Committee re- 
ported that the specifications and designs for the Engineering 
Building had been reviewed by Dean Belluschi even though the 
planning had virtually been completed prior to his having been re- 
tained. Dean Belluschi said he considers that the building has 
been sensitively designed (the architect is William W. Drummey) , 
and if the work proceeds well and good brick is selected it should 
be a good building. The Chairman reported to the Board that it x<ras 
the decision of the Committee to recommend to the Board the 
acceptance of the plans for the Engineering Building and after 
general discussion and upon motion being duly made and seconded, 
it was

ahead well. 

The Committee on Buildings and Grounds reviewed the design 

and elevation of the Food Technology Building with the design 

coordinator, Dean Belluschi. It was generally felt that the plans 

for the building would be greatly improved by the introduction of 

certain changes. Dean Belluschi agreed to talk to the architect and 

to recommend to him the necessary changes. 

Meeting with the Honorble Charles Gibbons 
Commission on Administration & Finance 



The Chairman of the Buildings and Grounds Committee re- 
ported the results of a meeting between the Committee and the 
Commission on Administration and Finance with respect to the proce- 
dure for recommendation and selection of architects for buildings on 
the University of Massachusetts campus. The Committee learned from 
the CoiiKnissioner that the general policy of the Governor, the 
Commissioner and the Division of Building Construction was that the 
best architects available within the state should be selected for a 
project. The Trustee Committee agrees that \'7herever possible Massa- 
chusetts architects should be selected, but in some cases the con- 
struction of a building on a university campus may call for a spirit 
or theme that is different from that which could be obtained from 



2425 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 

among Massachusetts architects available at any given time. The 
Committee raised with the Commissioner the question of to vrhat ex- 
tent recommendations from the Board of Trustees v/ill be honored in 
the selection of architects. Coiiiimissioner Gibbons said that he 
welcomed recommendations from the Trustees and that before any se- 
lections would be made, the preferences of the Commission will be 
made knovm to the Administration and Board of the University of 
Massachusetts. If there should be strenuous objection by the Uni- 
versity to the preferences of the Commission, the Commissioner will 
not assign the architect pending further consultation with the 
Board. 

In the course of general discussion of the meeting of the 
Committee on Buildings and Grounds V7ith the Commissioner of Ad- 
ministration and Finance, some disappointment was registered with 
respect to the disinclination of the Commissioner to agree to choos^ 
from among the three alternatives recommended by the Board of 
Trustees, There was general agreement that the Board and Administr^.- 
tion of the University should be most diligent in deciding on 
architect choices, and vigorously pursue the matter of having the 
architects selected from among the recommendations of the Board, 
and to do so by using the full weight of the Board in this program. 
It was moved, seconded and 



VOTED ; That all recommendations to the Commission on 
Administration and Finance for architects for 
construction on the University of Massachusetts 
campus include the full and precise explanation 
of the reasons for the recommendations of the 
Board and that the communication of this to the 
Commissioner on Administration and Finance 
should carry the signatures of both the Chair- 
man of the Board of Trustees and the President 
of the University,

In accordance with Chapter 705, Acts of 1962, Item 8063-19 
authorizing the Trustees of the University of Massachusetts to ac- 
quire certain lands V7ith the buildings thereon for the development 
of the University, by purchase or by eminent domain, under Chapter 
79 of the General Laws, and the authority granted therein, independei^t 
appraisals of the value of the land and buildings having been made 
by qualified disinterested appraisers and filed with Kenneth W. 
Johnson, Treasurer, on motion duly being made and seconded, it was 
unanimously 

VOTED : That the Trustees of the University of 

Massachusetts purchase or take by eminent 
domain in fee the property of Anna Uysocki 
consisting of a parcel of land in Amherst, 
Hairgjshire County, Massachusetts, situate at 
911 North Pleasant Street and more 
particularly described as parcel #70, page 
8A of the To\7n Atlas, Town of Amherst, and 
that the purchase price for said property 
be $60,000. 

The Board of Trustees was informed that additional action 
had been taken as requested by the Board at its last meeting and an 
option for purchase on the total Adams property had been acquired. 
No action or vote was recommended at the present time, because the 
Treasurer was acquiring another appraisal of the property. The 
Buildings and Grounds Committee will consider appropriate action at 
its next meeting and subsequently report to the full Board. 

The acquisition by the University of land in South 
Deerfield for agricultural purposes raises the potential problem of 
evicting from the premises certain families that had taken possession 
of some of the property as "squatters", never having had any legiti- 
mate right to occupy same. The attention of the Board was called to 
the fact that eventual eviction proceedings by the sheriff may be

present time. 

Report of the University of Massachusetts 
Building Authority 

Trustee Pumphret, Chairman of the University of Massachu- 
setts Building Authority, reported to the Board that work on the 
dormitory complex knox^m as Project i^2 was on schedule. He said thai: 
the architect, Hugh Stubbins and Associates, was pleased V7ith the 
cooperation and performance to date of the contractor (M. J. Walsh 
& Sons) . Instructions have been given to both the architect and 
the engineer to report immediately any serious delay in the con- 
struction schedule. Mr. Pumphret reported that the schedule is verj' 
tight. The plans of the Building Authority have been made in 
anticipation that the dormitories will be put into use the beginning 
of the fall semester 1963, and revenue must be obtained from that 
source at that time. At present, work is proceeding according to 
schedule. 

President Lederle presented personnel actions which were 

recommended to the Board of Trustees for their consideration and 
action. The President reported that the recommendations for per- 
sonnel actions were presented in a form departing from the usual 
procedure. For the first time, personnel actions were presented in 
tv70 parts, the first part being composed entirely of actions simila^- 
in nature to those which have been referred to the Board tradition- 
ally, and the second part composed of actions in large part re- 
ferred to the Board under the authority of Chapter 648 of the Acts 
of 1962. There was general discussion by the Board of the policies

Summer Counseling Program 

Provost X^oodside reported to the Board of Trustees that 
the Summer Counseling Program has proved to be a most successful 
activity, and results entirely support continuation of the program. 

The Treasurer reported that the payments listed in docu- 
ment #63-034 which is attached to and made part of these minutes, 
are for honoraria to be paid to the faculty members who participate 
in the various counseling sessions throughout the summer term. 



These payments are for services rendered outside of their regular

Meeting with Mount Holyoke Trustees, Novent>er 9, 1962 



President Lederle reminded the Board of Trustees that 
arrangements have been made for the joint meeting with the Trustees 
of Mount Holyoke College on November 9, 1962. He reported that the 
Mount Holyoke Trustees and top administrative officials have been in- 
vited to come to the campus of the University of Massachusetts on 
that date. The President raised the question of v/hat preferences the 
Board members may have with respect to the program for that day. It 
was suggested that the Chairman of the Board and the Presidents of 
the institutions make brief statements v/ith respect to the next ten 
years' outlook for each institution. It was also suggested that 
part of the program might involve women student leaders of the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts to enable the members of the Mount Holyoke 
Board to become more familiar V7ith the female conponent of the stu- 
dent body of the University. The detailed planning of the portion of 
the meeting to be held jointly was entrusted to the President.

Limitation of Occupancy of Faculty Housing 

It was brought to the Board's attention that one major 

problem which was expected to increase in intensity in the near 

future was the question of availability of housing for new faculty 

members coming into the University community. The resources of the 

University to meet this problem directly are severely limited. 

After general discussion. of the various implications of the problem 

and upon motion being duly made and seconded, it was unanimously 

VOTED : That, due to the extreme urgency of the problem 
of providing housing for some new faculty and 
staff who are expected to join the University 
in increasing numbers each year, from this date 
foxrward the terras and conditions of occupancy to 
which a person agrees when renting an apartment 
in the University Apartments shall provide that 
no one shall occupy an apartment in the Univer- 
sity Apartments for more than three years. Any- 
one who has occupied an apartment in the Univer- 
sity Apartments for more than two years on 
October 4, 1962 shall be asked to vacate such 
apartment on or before August 31, 1963. 

The Secretary called the attention of the members of the 
Board to the procedvire adopted by the Board requiring submission of 
recommendations and supporting dociiments for honorary' degree re- 
cipients by the week of October 22, 1962 in order to permit the 
necessary Committee and Board consideration of the recommendations. 

The President announced to the Board that in accordance 
with their request that he make plans for a special program and 
visitation day to the campus for members of the Legislature, he had 
set November 16, 1962 as Legislators 'Day. In addition, this year, 
the dedication of the new Gorman dormitory will be set on the same 
day.

The President reported to the Board that in accordance 
with their general instruction.? to him, he was moving ahead with all 
deliberate speed on problems associated with programming the steps 
in the organization of a first-class medical school at the Univer- 
sity. At the moment, the President reported that he v/as in the 
process of selecting a representative group of experts to act as an 
advisory committee on selection of a Dean. He conceived of a 
committee approximating five persons. The President requested 
recommendations from members of the Board for persons who might be 
considered for appointment to the advisory group. It was suggested 
that the President might consider the appointment of a member of the 
Board to the advisory group. 

The Treasurer reported that a telegram had been received 

from the Office of Contracts (f the Peace Corps stating that the 

contract with the Peace Corps for a training program v/ill be dated 

October 1, 1962 and expenditures necessarily made in the performance 

of the contract be reimbursable from that date. The Treasurer said 

that the contract with the Peace Corps was of the cost-reimbursable 

type. This necessitated the expenditure by the University of cash 

sums with subsequent reimbursement. The Treasurer asked that the 

Board authorize the Treasurer to finance the contract in this manner. 

After general discussion and upon motion being duly made and 

seconded, it was 

VOTED : To authorize the Treasurer to draw on Trust

the Comprehensive Circulation Study. The report established that 
the Comprehensive Circulation Study has been carried far enough to 
make regional and town planning proposals possible and to fix approxi- 
mate location of the traffic arteries which would be high-speed, 
high volume "loop" routes. The exact location of the route is yet 
to be determined in collaboration with state and town officials. 
The consultants are now at work on campus traffic pattern studies. 
The costs of the program for providing circulatory high-capacity, 
high-speed routes will require participation by the state, the Uni- 
versity and to some extent the town. At the next Amlierst Town 
meeting there will be an attempt to establish the exterior street 
lines for that part of the circulatory route to be provided by the 



town. 



The site has been recommended for the location of the 



Sports Facility which takes into consideration (a) the amount of 

land required for the structures and adjacent parking, (b) placement 

of the facility so that it is convenient to the campus but not 

interruptive of other caitpus activities, (c) the movement of 

traffic, (d) existing soil conditions, and others. In the opinion 

of Gordon Ainsworth & Associates, registered land surveyors and 

civil engineers, the site is ideal for this Sports Facility. Upon 

general discussion and upon motion being duly made and seconded, it 

was unanimously

Trustee Pun5)hret, Chairman of the Massachusetts Building 
Authority, reported that plans are underway for projects 3 and 4. 
Recently in a meeting on the status of project 2, it became apparent 
that the progress being made on that project was unsatisfactory. 
It now seems possible that the dormitories in project 2 will not be 
completed by September 1963, although they will be ready for the 
second semester of that year. The President commented on the fact 
that there will be 850 additional students at the beginning of the 
1963-64 year and that planning for alternative housing arrangements 
is proceeding. The situation requires careful consideration, and 
a joint meeting will be arranged between the President, the Chair- 
man of the Building Authority, and others. 

At this point, Mr. Austin Broadhurst, Attorney at Law, 
reported on the plans for financing projects 3 and 4. He explained 
the advantages to result from shifting from HHFA guarantee financing 
to bond financing. After general discussion and upon motion being 
duly made and seconded, it was unanimously
